Pragmatic Play – Snakes and Ladders Megadice – Free Slot Game

The popular board game called Snakes & Ladders (or Chutes & Ladders) originated in India, where it is known as Moksha Patam. It spread to Europe and America in the nineteenth century, and there are already a number of online slots based on this concept. However, Snakes and Ladders Megadice is likely to attract more attention, since it is published by Reel Kingdom (powered by ).

The developer has opted for graphics inspired by 8-bit video games, but this has been done much better in versions like Hellcatraz and Flame Busters. It’s all about the board bonus, and it’s admittedly quite entertaining to move across the 12×12 board to collect prizes and multipliers for payouts up to 5,300 times your bet. Watch out for snakes that will knock you to the ground and ladders that will take you up to the 1,000x top prize.

Snakes and Ladders Megadice slot features

The premium symbols pay between 15 and 50 times your bet for 5-wins, while the wild die symbol pays 50 times your bet for the same. The wild also occurs for all regular payout symbols to complete winning combinations, and it comes with a multiplier of x1, x2 or x3 (represented by the number of dots on the die).

Above the reels you will see a snake, which if you look closely is divided into 11 sections. Each die wild that lands highlights a section depending on how many points it has, and the board bonus game is triggered when all 11 sections of the snake have been highlighted. Progress on the snake is saved between bet levels, and you can also trigger the bonus game in the normal way.

The Snakes & Ladders Board Bonus is triggered when you land 3+ bonus scatters anywhere in sight. More specifically, landing 3, 4, or 5 Bonus symbols will award you 12, 14, or 16 dice rolls respectively, while triggering the feature via the snake will award 12 dice rolls.

The board bonus is played on a 12×12 grid with 144 positions , and you start at square one with a gorilla head token. You roll 2 dice per turn and your token then moves the same number of squares. The squares are either empty or they contain one of the following:

  • Money Award – gives you a win between 4 times and 100 times your bet (1,000 times for the last square).
  • Multiplier – increases your total winnings up to this point by x2 or x3.
  • Ladder – acts as a shortcut that takes you up the board.
  • Snake – does the opposite of the ladder and brings you back to the board.
  • Banana – distributes random cash rewards on the grid and removes other bananas.
  • Skyscraper – moves the Gorilla token to a random higher position on the board.

The feature ends when you run out of dice rolls or when you reach the end of the board, and the latter awards a 1,000x prize and a chance to retrigger the board bonus. You roll 2 dice and get the retrigger if the result is not a double. If you win less than 20 times your bet with the feature, you will be put into Rage mode. This moves the Gorilla Token to the last space and collects all prizes along the way.

The 200 Spins Snakes and Ladders Megadice Slot Experience

You’ll get a good taste of the base game’s grind before we trigger the Snakes & Ladders Board Bonus at 1:17 in the 4:47-minute highlights video. We got 12 dice rolls from our 3 triggering scatters, and you can see for yourself how we fared by clicking the “Play” button below.


The base game probably won’t wow anyone despite the multiplier dice wilds, but fans of the popular board game should enjoy the bonus game. Snakes and Ladders Megadice is not the first release we’ve seen based on the popular Indian board game, but it is among the better slot versions. The retro visuals do seem a bit half-baked, but it’s not really a deal-breaker if you’re into that sort of thing.

It’s fun to move around the board, climbing ladders and descending snakes, and you’ll pick up prizes along the way. Landing on multipliers can really make an impact, leading to payouts of up to 5,300 times your bet at best . We also like the dice wild collection system, which gives you some sort of assurance that the all-important board game bonus will be triggered within a reasonable number of spins. The graphics could have been developed even further, but board game fans will definitely enjoy it.
